Actually I think you can use cutting edge OpenSolaris 2009.06 release 
(which will happen in less than a week)  for SPARC on that hardware. I 
haven't tried it out on Sun Blade 1000/2000 yet but in theory you can. 
Refer to the following thread

Though you will need an Automated Installer setup to install OpenSolaris
